Assisted Living for Children with Autism in India
Bhumika Foundation when established was aimed to enable persons with Autism to live a fulfilling life with dignity and the highest degree of independence.
The Facility caters to persons above the age of 14 years. The main programs include special education, vocational training, occupational training, life skills training, behavior modification, speech therapy and social skills training.
Bhumika Foundation has an Assisted Living Centre which is a residential program is the first of its kind for persons with disability in India.
The term Assisted Living Center is used because the setup is not meant to be a care giving “home” but a place for rehabilitation, lifelong care and continuous growth.
Vocational Training and Hobby Development are a regular part of the program. Weekly cooking lessons, as well as daily activities ensure that the service users have a full day of learning and development.
The school offers the facilities of a Transport Vehicle, wheelchair friendly bathrooms, physio-therapy equipment, Computer room, Handicraft Room, Library, Farming learning Facility, Poultry Farming, and a lunchroom.
The students are taken to restaurants, supermarkets, shops to develop their social skills. Self Help Skills are taught to people who have reached teenage or adulthood, yet are still dependent on others for things like bathing, brushing etc. These skills are broken down into simple steps, and students are taught systematically to achieve each step till they master the whole activity. The staff consists of well-trained vocational trainers, occupational trainers, and special educators overlooked by our chief Psychologist Dr Vishal Ganar with over 20 years of experience in the same field.
